    Stuff like Kombustor is probably the best to notice the smallest of artifacts, it uses the same "overkill" method of testing as Furmark but gives you a consistent color/smooth texture to easily spot artifacts.

    I'm somewhat inclined to believe it's either a quirk in the driver or DirectX. I can't be arsed to go cycling through the driver versions presently though...

    You can rebuild your computer(s) five times a day but you can't be arsed to reinstall old drivers? ^^

    Anyway, could be an issue with WoW actually. Depends on the artifacts I guess, but I've had some weird texture issues almost every major launch.

    Hard drive packaging! What the hell, seriously. Doesn't have any protection, doesn't even come in a card box.

    Bought a few new hard drives today on my coffee break from an actual physical store and this became quite apparent. First you pick it up from the store and it's on this plastic anti-theft container, completely free to rattle around. After you've paid it they remove it and it's left with nothing but the anti static bag. Where the fuck am I supposed to stuff the drives now for the rest of the work day to keep them safe. o_o Careless..

    It's not like some bubble wrap or even just a card box would cost that much extra. And how do they ship the drives to the store is a mystery. It's not like they had that good protective shell on their own I don't think (to take shocks if you throw it around a little). o_O

    Mine came in an anti-static bag and wrapped in an inch of bubblewrap.

    OEM drives come in large boxes with cut foam, where there's a bunch of slots in the foam to fit 3.5mm hard drives individually wrapped in static bags. It does its job well.

    Really, you would have to subject a drive to a hefty amount of G force to break it when it's parked/not running.


    So, anyone know why 0x124 errors would suddenly appear after a year of being perfectly stable? I'm guessing it's a sign the silicon is weakening or something.

    If that's the case, I'm going to have to kill my overclock. @_@

    But why do I still feel depressed thinking about it!?!

    At Asera. What's your overclock and voltage? :-P Maybe give it a notch more voltage.. Just to counter the degradation.

    4600mhz @ 1.375v It was stable at 1.345 before, I've had to increase it, and it's still 0x124ing

    That's in the eye of the beholder though. I have friends that swear their old Pentium 4 era Dell Dimension towers -- the ones that opened like a clam, remember those -- were 'perfect cases'. :s

    Exactly. I've already explained why I've gone from one case to the other, last I recall... '-'

    I got a license from work for Solid Works, I am going to try it out and see if I can do a case concept
